    Default Maintenance gardener

    I'm wondering if anyone has a maintenance gardener come 1-2x a month? How much do you pay and is it an hourly rate of fixed price?

    TIA

    We have jims mowing come in every 4 weeks, just to do our front lawn. It's $50 each time.

    We have a gardener who comes every second Friday. He does 4 hours at $25/hour (so $100).

    Great, thanks. I'm not sure what to expect rates wise - a Google search tells me anything from
    $25-$50/hr. Trying to work out if it's feasible, our garden is always full of weeds and they are back 1 week later, it drives me mental.

    I love having a garden but I hate gardening and the upkeep they need. It's such a time sink!

    We pay a bloke from Jims $45 a visit to mow the lawn & spray weeds in the gravel areas around the house.
